Super League fixture falls foul of COVID as virus ravages club

The Betfred Super League fixture between Leigh Centurions and Warrington Wolves scheduled for Thursday (July 22) has been postponed under the Covid Fixture Protocols.

Warrington, who have a number of players still unavailable following positive Covid tests which led to the postponement of their last fixture against Hull KR scheduled for July 11, had a further positive test today which takes them to a total of nine players ruled out, one of whom is a close contact and therefore also required to isolate.

The Covid Fixture Protocols state that a club can apply for a postponement if they have seven or more of their 25 best-paid players ruled out as a result of Covid-19.

The clubs will now liaise with the RFL about a possible rearrangement of the fixture – although the Betfred Super League table will again be determined by win points percentage to allow for the possibility of not all fixtures being fulfilled.
